Misty Dawn: portrait of a muse

Sturges' eerbetoon aan een van zijn meest inspirerende modellen. Het boek biedt een fraai beeld van Misty Dawn in haar ontwikkeling van kind tot jonge moeder.

New York, Aperture, 2008. Linnen met stofomslag, 29 x 26 cm, 167p, afbeeldingen in zw/w.

'Over the course of his career, Jock Sturges' long-term engagement with his subjects has been a cornerstone of his work. Misty Dawn, one of his primary and most popular muses, is one such subject; he has photographed her for 25 of her 28 years. Lithe, beautiful, classically proportioned, she is the personification of Sturges' philosophy of being at home in one's body. This volume follows her growth from a shy, tomboyish child to a gorgeous, confident young woman. Taken as a whole, this series of images presents a unique, fully realized portrait of a blossoming individual and explores a rare and beautiful relationship between photographer and subject. "Misty Dawn: Portrait of a Muse" presents iconic images as well as previously unpublished material, mined from Sturges' older contact sheets and newest work. Jock Sturges, born in New York in 1947, received a B.A. in perceptual psychology and photography from Marlboro College in Vermont in 1974 and an M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1985. He has exhibited internationally, and his photographs are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. His previous Aperture books include "Notes, The Last Day of Summer" and "Radiant Identities.
